Short Bio: Justin Timberlake is an American singer and actor. He started his career in the entertainment world when it joined in the early 1990s N'Sync. In launching her first album, the album sold 13 million copies worldwide. Justin also made a solo album, titled Justified, the album was released in November 2002. Her first album was a success, selling over 7 million copies worldwide.
NSYNC got started in Orlando, FL, in 1996, when Timberlake and Chasez teamed up with Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Joey Fatone. Managed by former New Kids on the Block manager Johnny Wright, *NSYNC were eventually formed in 1995. Enlisting hit pop producers Kristian Lundin (Backstreet Boys), and Denniz Pop and Max Martin (Robyn, Ace Of Base ), the team recorded a collection of teen-oriented pop/dance tracks. The band found success in Europe first on the strength of their singles, I Want You Back and Tearin' Up My Heart. A tour of American roller rinks introduced them to the US audience, as a result of which I Want You Back became a US No.13 hit in May 1998. Their self titled debut album was released in 1998 selling millions of copies in Europe and the US.
A 2003 appearance as a guest host on America's satirical TV show, Saturday Night Live show led to a slew of film offers for our young hero. He told Q magazine in 2003 that he had turned down a chance to appear as the new Superman although he has already starred in a TV movie, Model Behaviour and been importuned by the ferret-wigged Elton John to play a young Elton in his video for This Train Don't Stop Here Anymore. He has also started his own organisation, the Justin Timberlake Foundation to help provide funds for music education in US public schools.
